The Switchey’s One Year Anniversary

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

We all know Oct 1 = 26 = the best. But do you know what else it is? I’ll tell you. It’s the Switchey’s one year anniversary. What are we doing to celebrate? Well, since I’m devoting all of tomorrow to ME ME ME by typing 200 word paragraphs about foreclosure law and then studying percentages and ratios, we decided to spend a little special Switchey time together tonight. How? Well, I tried, and failed, to cook black beans and then ate some tofu. And the Freetsey cut up a gallery reject $13,000 Barry La Va collage/drawing to better fit the wall space above my piano casio Yamaha. Money? Made of it.

Goodbye 25

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Today is the last day that I am 25 years old. I’d like to take this opportunity to review a few symptoms of the Quarter Life Crisis as defined by Wikipedia:

- insecurity regarding the near future

- feeling “not good enough” because one can’t find a job

- financially-rooted stress, unanticipatedly high cost of living

- desire to have children

- tendency to hold stronger opinions

Welp. Looks like I’m in the clear. Let’s go ahead and conclude this post with a painting by Kasimir Malevich titled, Unemployed Girl (1904). Sad eyes, happy face?

Winning Strategy: Forfeiting

Monday, September 29th, 2008


With just five Bunt Pluggers, we defeated the “Kickballs of Fire” by 12 points or some other outrageous and praise-worthy number.

Unfortunately, it didn’t count because we failed to have the required 7 players until halfway through the game when Berna showed up in spicy rain gear, and then, during the last inning, Shawntice. The other team was overwhelming impressed. “We’re going to tell your story,” they told us as we shook hands after ruining their self-esteem. It was the best game we ever lost.

A Rat Wedding

Sunday, September 28th, 2008

You know when you were in college with your girlfriends and you were like, Omg who’s going to be the first one to get married and have the babies? And someone was like, I think it’s going to be you! And you were like Hahah omg no way, but secretly you were like, yes omg really?

The ceremony started out like this.


Then we ate and drank things and Peter performed his mating dance.

Then the rats attacked while I stayed sophisticated and composed.

Then I decided that I, too, wanted to get married immediately, so, naturally, I wept while Peter laughed and took photos.

GRE Practice Question

A. Got eyebrow wax from short mute man

B. Broke into backyard / scaled suspended fire escape ladder to second floor window without dieing

C. Researched / wrote 213 words about Quincy, Massachusetts

This is tricky. Do you want me to tell you? Alright I’ll tell you. It’s E.  How can I bake without baking pans? Alright that’s enough.  I have to go buy somebody’s else cooking.

How Do You Save the Environment?

Peter + Tony = Love

It’s funny because I make fun of Peter for drinking lots of milk and building tons of muscles and making out with skinny chicks, but he’s saving the environment with Tony Blair while I’m giving mean eyes to people who use plastic bags to carry groceries.

Anniversary Countdown

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008

A lot is happening. And by a lot is happening I mean a lot is happening with me, like in my life. There are four important dates approaching. First, KJRJ is about to became KJL on Sept 27th and I get to wear my little black knit DVF number. So that’s exciting for me. Then, on Oct 1st, it is the Switchey’s one year anniversary and the day I turn 26, something I have been waiting for since I was 12. No joke. Then, two weeks later, Freetze gets to play the 26 game, and I just KNOW we’ll spend the next 12 months together laughing lots and eating little with friends and songs and feelings and hopefully more kitchen wares. Just two 26 year olds celebrating our second year together as one little happy Switchey family. Oh, and apparently Peter turns 26 sometime in October too, so we should all buy him a gallon of milk or whey powder or bacon fat for his girlfriends. Who reads this by the way? Peter, do you show this to your girlfriends on your climate change blackberry?

I think it’s time for a memory:

Last lox

This is one of the last meals I had at Ma Sweet’s penthouse.  I am the happiest, but I really do miss Sunday night dinners with my two moms.
